How Lenny compares to other developers

(or even hosting providers)

There are other good developers out there, let me tell you why I might be a better option for your web environment.

Alternatives to hosting providers

There are some basic differences between renting an instance from a host and my services.

Classic hosts offer you managed and unmanaged servers:

Managed servers require a basic knowledge of server management, you benefit from a graphical interface allowing you to perform all the daily actions of a server administrator.

Unmanaged servers require advanced knowledge in server management, all your commands must be carried out on the command line, but you are not limited by the actions offered by a graphical interface.

Hosting providers specializing in a particular CMS (WordPress will be used as an example since 40% of websites run on this CMS) only offer managed servers, which limits your scope of action but which makes it possible to maintain compatibility improvements proposed by the host.

In all cases, whether or not you have the necessary knowledge to manage a server, you will need a person dedicated to its management.

For my part, I rent unmanaged instances at Google Cloud Platform on which I apply an extreme optimization of performance and security compared to the CMS that you use or not. By taking my hosting services, you are actually renting a server maintenance package as well as a license to use this extreme optimization.
